GWERU-Regional Magistrate Christopher Maturure has sentenced two men who robbed a Mukuru outlet in Maboleni, Lower Gweru, to 10 years in jail.
Tapiwa Zhazha (31) and Courage Bongani Moyo (31) will serve eight years each should they restitute US$1 194, ZAR16 600 and two Samsung Galaxy A12 mobile phones to Mukuru.
They were sentenced on their plea on Friday, barely three days after their arrest following a tip-off on Wednesday.
The duo robbed the Maboleni Mukuru outlet on March 28, 2023, around 10 am. They confronted Michael Mpofu (28), manning the outlet and pointed a pistol at him, demanding cash.
Mpofu complied and gave them all the money in a cash box. After the offence, the gang fled the scene in a Honda Fit.
